Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

Avalon 6-cyl

This vehicle has an automatic unlocking feature that is linked to the shift. Whenever the vehicle is placed in "park, " all 4 doors automatically unlock. The routine in the owners manual to "cancel" this feature does not work. I tried it over 20 times, and took it to the dealer and a local automotive electronics shop - it is just not possible to stop the automatic unlocking. The problem is that this is a threat to safety in many parts of the country, in many kinds of locations. The motorist cannot choose whether to unlock his/her doors, even if a threat is present. This feature makes the motorist vulnerable to car jacking, robbery and many other kinds of crimes.
